Welcome to Trenestrall Farm B&B

Trenestrall Farm is a 300 acre family run farm situated on the Roseland Peninsula, in a truly rural setting offering Bed and Breakfast accommodation. The farm house is a 200 year old listed stone barn which has been tastefully converted, with the convenience of modern comfort whilst keeping interesting architectural features and has been in the family for three generations. The barn is part of the farm buildings which were listed in the 1990’s and was converted by ourselves in 1989.

The farm is off the main road, just 1 mile from Philleigh with its 16th century pub, about 10 minutes from the beautiful village of St Mawes and about 20 minutes from Truro. So although off the beaten track we are within easy reach of most of Cornwall with the King Harry Ferry offering a scenic way of travelling west.

The farming enterprise consists of a pedigree herd of Charolais cattle some of which are shown at county shows, and a large acreage of cereals. We also run a small game bird shoot in the winter.

Most of the stock is out in the field during the spring and summer months and can be seen whilst looking out over views of the far reaching countryside.

We aim to offer a relaxing environment for families and offer reductions for children. Pets are also welcome by arrangement. A warm welcome is assured and a hearty breakfast using local produce is available.


When we converted the barn, we tried to keep many of the old features whilst enjoying modern conveniences and now offer the following accommodation.

The entrance to the house is via a hallway with exposed beams and from which there is a short staircase (12 stairs) to the main landing, off which leads all visitor accommodation. Should stairs be a problem, there is an alternative entrance when all accommodation is reached on that level.

There is plenty of offroad parking.

All bedrooms are ensuite and can be made up with single, twin or superking size beds. Each room has tea making facilities, TV, Wi-Fi, a range of bedtime reading and to save room in your suitcase, towels are provided.

 The tariff for 2024 is £42 per person per night with price reductions available for children according to age.

Please feel free to ring us with any questions you may have.

Guests have the use of a very large ‘L’ shaped sitting and dining room with an open fire if the weather is chilly. There are exposed beams and unusual round windows. The lounge is available to guests at all times and solely for their use.


Wake up to the smell of freshly baked bread and a real tasty English breakfast which is available throughout your stay with us. Breakfast is served in the dining room between 8.00 and 9.00am.

Locally produced fare is used wherever possible. Cereals followed by bacon and sausages from our local butcher and free range eggs from our own hens.  Locally made or home-made preserves on our freshly baked bread, and a choice of teas or coffee, should set you up for the day ahead, leaving a little room for a cream tea later in the day!!

Finding Us

Leave the A30 at Fraddon, (look for the Macdonalds and Kingsley Village signs). Go steady as it is a sharp bend.  Having turned off the A30 follow the signs to Ladock and then Truro until you reach the A390. Turn left up the hill and then turn right onto the A3078 signed to St Mawes. Continue on this road. 4 miles after Tregony, you reach the small village of Ruan High Lanes.  In the village you turn right, signed to Philleigh and the King Harry Ferry. Be careful which road you take as there are two roads going off the same junction. Follow this road round a couple of bends, down the hill and up the other side and Trenestrall is on your right hand side about 1 mile from leaving the main road.
